Through the Undergraduate Teacher Scholars Capstone, students may have the opportunity to enhance an existing course for a Texas A&M faculty member or create a seminar on a topic that interests them. *WHY:
Teacher Scholars will learn pedagogical skills such as setting learning objectives and creating learning experiences. They will learn to identify assessment strategies to evaluate learning. They will also practice with schedule coordination, classroom management, and extensive public speaking and discussion coordination.HOW:
The Undergraduate Teacher Scholar Capstone is a two-semester experience in which students can choose between developing a new 1 credit seminar (small, interactive) course*, or develop educational material to enhance an already existing course. Both options require the Undergraduate Teacher Scholar (UTS) to identify a faculty mentor who will work with the UTS to prepare educational material during the first semester and will be the instructor of record during the second semester. Registration in UGST 497 in the section designated to Teaching is required in both semesters of the capstone.WHEN:
This capstone can be run Fall/Spring or Spring/Fall. For more information regarding application deadlines, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
*Students may only select the option to develop a course if their department or college allows.
